Hey there! My name is Silvia Hernández and I’m the human behind Ceramics by Sil.
Engineer turned designer, I was born in a handicraft-loving family and learned about the magic of craftsmanship from a young age. My love for ceramics bloomed during my time in London (UK). I started digging deeper into it first at Central Saint Martins School of Design, and later on at Turning Earth Studios.
Ceramics by Sil was shaped right after I landed in Toronto, the city I’ve been calling home for over two years and where I became a proud Toronto Potters member.
My work is inspired by nature and influenced by my human-centred design self. I focus on hand-building pieces, and I’m naturally drawn towards natural textures and colours. That said, I’m continuously experimenting with new techniques.
